  1. Yes that's the new sailing times, previously she left Plymouth 15.45 and arrive Santander at lunchtime. Just a shame there's not much time to arrange anything.
  2. It means you can sail from a port and return to that port, not face a few hours on a coach.
  3. We used to go Wednesday, now Tuesday evening, and back Monday arriving Tuesday morning giving virtually a week away, at reasonable price if booked early enough.
  4. They want to see the steam coming out the funnels. It would be a good idea but is there a practical way of doing it?
  5. I did say to the boss we could do a short break in Santander like we used to but probably to late to book now or will be expensive.

    Armorique Making History

    It's not been the whole weekend, just 36hr, from arrival in Roscoff on Saturday morning to departure on Sunday afternoon. Plus of course the loss of the PA sailing on Sunday mornings.

    When Honfleur arrives is the one thing no one has thought of, it could help the situation.

    They do but if Armorique has to cover St Malo when Plymouth reopens we do get the chance of going Plymouth to St Malo, which makes a change.
  9. Yes Ed, as I said the wording is a bit funny.
  10. I think that's all as expected. The Ply/Ros sailings are the ones cancelled for the Arm to do Cork, perhaps the explanation is a bit funny. The statement said the PA would start again on the 14th from Plymouth, so obviously the sailing on the 13th is cancelled.
  11. That would virtually rule her out for the summer, 2 months or more doing the work and that's after you've got the new engine, I don't think you'll get one off the shelf. They'll go back to the old Plymouth timetable, without the crossing to Roscoff on the Tuesday, should leave her plenty of time to take it easy.
  12. When you think about it BF have a problem, a ship that needs replacing soon, Bretagne, and the only obvious replacement is to big for the route, unless of course they can grow the route with an improved offering.
  13. What happens with Plymouth Spain then? The only answer would be the Cap, would give me a chance to finally go on her.
  14. She could do her normal trip to Spain from Plymouth and do extra sailings to Cork if BF see trade growing that way post Brexit
  15. I think Gareth got mixed up there. It was the original link span in Plymouth, wasn't there something on here a few years ago saying that the Royal Marines have used it at times? If the PA came to Plymouth full time it would be to service Spain and Cork, not replace Armorique.
